Lil Wayne Returns To The Studio

Lil Wayne Returns To The Studio

Last night, Lil Wayne was getting back to business after being away for 8 months. Weezy had his first recording session at Hit Factory in Miami which lasted through till the morning. You can see a photo above, and you can also see that Tune is using a notebook which he has not done since he was 17 years old. Wayne was also recording his verses over a Develop beat, and here is a lyric from one of the verses: “If time is money, I’m an hour past paid.”


Lil Wayne Shows You How And Where He Records His Rhymes

On Monday, DJ Scoob Doo gave MTV News a behind-the-scenes preview of his new DVD, “The Nino Brown Story Pt. 2,” featuring Lil Wayne reflecting on his past. Now Scoob graced us with another preview, showing us how Wayne really gets down in the studio.

You would imagine that a Lil Wayne recording session would involve a smoke-filled room and Weezy bobbing spastically in the booth, spitting an onslaught of lyrics at the mic. The fact that Wayne doesn’t write anything down only adds to the legend but it’s the small things that set Wayne apart from the rest.

Wayne is shown listening to the playback of a freestyle he spit over Jay-Z’s “D.O.A (Death of Auto-Tune)” for his No Ceilings mixtape, and he’s not sure if he’s getting his point across.

“Say, because I said, ‘Getting swallowed in a Maybach,’ I meant the Maybach’s so big. I don’t want n—a thinking I’m getting h— in the Maybach.”

After a sip of his juice, a lightbulb seemly goes off in his head and Wayne runs back into the booth. He asks his engineer to play the sound back from a certain point and begins to re-record the lines, “I do it for my team Tim Tebow, n—a/ I’m killin’ this shit, grim reap flow n—a/ Getting swallowed by the Maybach, deep throat n—a.”

According to DJ Scoob Doo, Wayne’s partner on the DVD, the clip was shot in the wee hours of the morning in the rapper’s Miami condo. “You get to see how much fun Lil Wayne has making songs. It’s phenomenal to see somebody at 7 o’clock in the morning or 8 o’clock in the morning after being in the studio for a good 10, 12 hours and still having fun.”

Wanye exited the booth excited to hear the small change, and then turned to the camera to explain the importance of paying attention to detail.

“That’s important, rappers, on the real — two-letter words are important. You gotta change sh–. Think about the things you say, because people are listening,” Wayne said. “It’s simple, but it’s important.

“And this is just a mixtape.”
